Major letting to Sigma in Örebro

2010-04-16

Klövern has let 1,500 sq.m. of office space with an annual rent of over SEK 2.3 million to the IT consultancy company Sigma in Örebro. Sigma’s establishment is important, not just for Klövern, but also for the development of the new cooperation organisation for businesses in Örebro – Business & Science Arena.

Sigma’s new premises are at the property Forskarbyn 2, generally known as Netcity, adjacent to Örebro University. The lease has a term of more than five years and the tenant is expected to move in on 1 August this year. Already at the Netcity property is Inkubera whose aim is to assist newly-started businesses to develop in an exciting environment including the university, the municipality and the business sector.

Sigma’s establishment is a strategically important part of the development of Business & Science Arena Örebro, a new arena for knowledge- and development-intensive businesses in the Örebro region. The organization is supported by the Municipality of Örebro, Örebro University, the Regional Development Council and Klövern.

“It is gratifying to be able to welcome such a large and highly-reputed company to Netcity”, says Klövern’s CEO Gustaf Hermelin. “We are convinced that they have a lot to contribute to other tenants, but also that we can offer an exciting and dynamic environment with a lot of business potential.”
